Definitely one of the highlights of our honeymoon week in Nola! It is magical and beautiful! A must-do if you enjoy the idea of a transformation back in time or just want to pretend you're in Downton Abbey! Our server was kind and explanatory about the varieties of teas and made our experience wonderful!

Everything from the greeting, to table service, food, and tea was impeccable. My *only* nitpick is that there were SO MANY kids there. Outnumbered the adults, I swear. I’d love to have a day or time available for adults only tea.

It was very nice and I will definitely go again. I did find the sandwiches and canapés were not fresh and the desserts were a bit stale.

Le Salon is a beautiful space in an outstanding hotel. The cocktails tea, sandwiches, scones, and desserts were delicious. It is a little pricey for what it is, but you are paying for the experience, not just the food.

We spend one afternoon with girlfriend enjoying their tea. It is a favorite event. The variety of teas is wonderful. The tea sandwiches are yummy. The scones are excellent. My favorite are the gingerbread at Christmas time! The light desserts are a perfect ending!! I enjoy listening to the harpist which lends itself to the relaxing and luxurious atmosphere. This is our third year and we plan to keep coming back!!

Afternoon tea at LeSalon is always a nice experience. Harp and piano player provided nice Xmas music without disturbing our conversation. The English inspired food was as good as always as was the selection of speciality teas

First time in 15 years of Christmas tea with my daughter that we were disappointed.
For the price of this event, the last thing I want to feel is rushed by the server. As soon as we got our drinks, she brought the sandwich plate, before asking about our tea selection. We normally enjoy tea for at least 90 minutes, we were presented the bill at noon. Our reservation started at 11:30. We had to ask for more sugar and tea. I don’t feel she was attentive to our overall experience, more she was trying to hurry us along.
The Salon was not full, so there was no need to rush us out.
Also, the harp music was beautiful but should be pleasant background music. It was much too loud to try and hold a conversation.
I seriously hate to be critical because this is part of our Christmas tradition that we look forward to each year. We meet with family members and normally have an awesome time. This year, I feel like we were overcharged for the quality of service.
La Salon, Windsor Court, you can do better.

Every year, my mom, aunt, sister, and sister-in-law get together for tea before Christmas. Have been doing so for many years. Was worried about this year with everything going on but Le Salon did not disappoint. We had a wonderful time and the service was excellent:)

The Christmas tea was nice. Besides 3 choices of the first drink, nothing was Christmas themed. The sandwiches were plain, two types of scones, and chocolate, chocolate covered strawberries, and almond cake for dessert. I was expecting at least gingerbread cookies or peppermint candy cane crushed on the tired old chocolate covered strawberries. No creativity. The service was 5 star phenomenal. It just couldn't make up for an uneventful and boring menu. I would price this as $30 per person not $70.

Wasn’t up to the normal standard. Food wasn’t fresh. Fruit flies everywhere. It was probably because of all the fresh flowers but it definitely was a disappointment. I expected more for the amount of money and the normal experience just wasn’t there!

The decor: bland tan and puke green furniture - tired...a la 1970's. It wasn't festive and cheerful.
Food: for almost $50 per person, there should have been more food on offer, and in larger portions.
Service: our teapots were kept on a separate table (out of our reach), and so we were at the mercy of the server to top up our tea. Our teabags were never removed from our teapot, and so the tea continued to steep, resulting in a very strong, and bitter, second cup. After retrieving our teapots, to place them ON our table, and after removing the teabags, the remaining pot of tea was too strong. To be fair, we were offered additional water, but at that point we were over the whole experience.
We were looking forward to a fancy tea service, but were disappointed all around.
Wouldn't go back, and wouldn't recommend. Not worth the cost.
